However, I can only do about three to five boards before the blades are dull. I have already gone through three sets of blades. I'm trying to...

    I have just completed a king sized reclaimed wood headboard. I have basically left the "inside" boards untouched and the outside trim is treated using a vinegar aging method. My question is this. How should I proceed. I have experimented with Oil based poly (smells, takes forever to...

    Hello all, I've got some really nice barn Chestnut that I want to use in a project or three, but it's got some problems. One if the boards is close to 13" wide, and 3/4" thick, and I want to use it in a headboard, showing off its width, but it's got some rather severe cupping going on such that...

    I have an 11' reclaimed cabin log beam that I want to finish for a floating wood mantel. The beam is very weathered and gray and has not been touched at all. I have no idea how to proceed. I am not certain if I want to sand the rough, gray finish down... if so, how to go about doing that...

    i just got presented with a project that calls for the installation of reclaimed pine beams on a drywall ceiling. i am certain that the ceiling joists run parallel to the direction of the beams, so i can't necessarily guarantee the correct spacing if i am to anchor to them. since i can't very...
